Ingredients

Chocolate

  • 1 1/2 cups dates
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 3 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Banana

  • 2 bananas sliced and dehydrated
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 2/3 cup walnuts

Mango

  • 1 small mango chopped and dehydrated
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 2/3 cup almonds
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 tsp. lime zest

Instructions

  • Chocolate Larabars: Put all the ingredients in a food processor and whirl for 1 to 2 minutes. You want to see some small chunks of all the different ingredients, so don't mix for so long that it becomes a uniform paste. Transfer the mixture to an 8 x 8 pan and press down to make it level. Refrigerate for an hour, and then cut into 12 bars. Transfer the bars to an airtight container and refrigerate.
  • Banana Larabars: This one takes a little more time, unless you want to buy dried banana chips. Slice the bananas and put them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Put them in a 175 degree oven for 2 1/2 hours. When they are mostly dried out, remove them from the oven. Place all three ingredients in a food processor and mix for 1 to 2 minutes. You want to see some small chunks of all the different ingredients, so don't mix for so long that it becomes a uniform paste. Transfer the mixture to a loaf pan and press down to make it level. Refrigerate for an hour, and then cut into 6 bars. Transfer the bars to an airtight container and refrigerate.
  • Mango Larabars: This one is my favorite. The mango needs to be dehydrated before mixing, but leave a little moisture for flavor. Place the chopped mango on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Put it in a 175 degree oven for 2 1/2 hours. When they are mostly dried out, remove the mangoes from the oven. (Alternately, you can buy dried mango and use it for this recipe, but the mango flavor won't be as prominent.) Place all the ingredients in a food processor and mix for 1 to 2 minutes. You want to see some small chunks of all the different ingredients, so don't mix for so long that it becomes a uniform paste. If it seems too moist, add more nuts and coconut until you have a thick, paste-like consistency. Transfer the mixture to a loaf pan and press down to make it level. Refrigerate for an hour, and then cut into 6 bars. Transfer the bars to an airtight container and refrigerate.
